Upcoming Speaking Events

2020 has been a very slow year for me

Even before COVID-19 hit, due to scheduling and other pressures, I had made the decision to cut back on my speaking engagements. But then COVID-19 hit and even the few I had put in to speak at were for the most part cancelled.

And it’s official, I will be speaking at PASS Summit this year! I will be talking on PowerShell for Beginners. I’m excited and looking forward to this. While I had hoped to do this in person, I’m still thrilled to have the opportunity to do this virtually!

Looking back I spoke at SQL Saturday Albany. This was an interesting talk since I gave it remotely and I had to add more on talking remotely.

On September 15th I gave a presentation on System Databases to the Denver User Group, again of course remotely.

2019 had been a busy year for me

SQL Saturday Colorado Springs – This time I had an audience! Read about my 2018 experience here and my 2019 experience here.

SQL Saturday Virginia Beach – This was one of my favorite SQL Saturdays in awhile. Monica Rathbun and her crew did an amazing job. I was disappointed I couldn’t submit for 2020 due to scheduling and equally disappointed to learn because of COVID they had to cancel.

I later had the opportunity to come down and speak at one of their user group meetings.

I of course spoke at SQL Saturday Albany, NY – July 20th

Unfortunately, I got turned down for:

SQL Saturday Oslo, Norway – (this would be my second overseas one)

I will update as I get accepted (or rejected) and apply for more.

In the meantime, if you’re interested in me speaking at your office or event, please contact me.

In 2018 I spoke at:

SQL Saturday Colorado Springs (or more accurately, was scheduled then… this happened.)

SQL Saturday Philadelphia

SQL Saturday Atlanta on May 19th.

SQL Saturday Manchester UK – Kicked off a family vacation to Europe. We had a wonderful time and despite the language barrier of English vs. American, I think my group enjoyed the talk and got a lot out of it. I had several come up to me afterwards with positive comments and feedback.

SQL Saturday Albany NY – where I was pleased to participate with he WIT panel.

Washington DC SQL User Group Meeting – Spoke about SQL Backups

SQL Saturday Washington DC – Closed out there year where my talk on SQ Server for under $200 was a huge success.

I hope you caught me at one of those.
